Product Highlights

  • HD Lens System
  • Aluminum Housing
  • Multi-Layer Coating
  • LotuTec Coating
  • Large Focusing Wheel
  • Close Focus
  • Twist-Up Eyecups

The Conquest 10x42 HD Binocular from Zeiss has a higher magnification that allows concentrating on a more focused subject for greater detail. The golden-mean objective size provides sufficient light gathering ability for the twilight zones of dust and dawn without the added bulk of an oversized objective. Watersports and rainy days won't leave this item in the car or backpack. It is waterproof to 13' and nitrogen filled to provide fogproofing and inhibit any condensation build-up.

Zeiss high quality optics plays a major role in the superiority of this binocular. Multi-layer coating reduces light loss and glare due to reflection offering a brighter, higher-contrasted image and light transmission of up to 90%. HD (High Definition) glass reduces the chromatic aberration that appears as unwanted "fringes" of color between dark and bright parts of an image. The LotuTec coating protects the lenses from dust and water. Rain just slides right off the exposed glass.

A large center focusing knob is easily accessible in all kinds of weather. The twist-up eyecups feature is a comfort for eye and sunglass wearers and the dioptric adjustment ring allows for individual eye differences. The close focus of an up-front 6.6'/2m means being able to catch the detail in that fluttery butterfly's wing before it disappears into thin air.

AAoV of 52.8°
HD, high density lens system provides clear and neutral colors
Large focusing wheel and twist-up eyecups add user-friendly functionality

        Comments about Zeiss Conquest 10x42 HD Binocular:

        Since I have so many floaters in my left eye and my vision is 20/30 corrected, I decided to buy a 10x42 binocular--Carl Zeiss Conquest HD. My Swarovski bins are 8.5x42 so it wasn't a big jump in magnification but it helps.

        These feel heavy when you pick them up but when you have them up to your eyes, they don't feel as heavy. Must be the way they're balanced. And they are actually a few grams lighter than my Swarovski EL 8.5x42.

        The focus wheel doesn't require much turning to get the binocular in focus which is an advantage over my Swarovskis.

        I wish the ocular lens caps were made with a hinge so that they can be used with the binocular set at my interpupillary distance. These caps are joined with a rubber strip and I have to open out the binocular to use them.

            Very happy with my purchase. Sharp, bright optics, sturdy construction. Great warranty by Zeiss.

            Purchased these after doing online research for weeks. Now I see why these binoculars get such great reviews.

            Loved them so much, I bought the 8x42's as well.

            Great value for those that want premium optics without paying alpha premium prices.

              Comments about Zeiss Conquest 10x42 HD Binocular:

              I use these binoculars for birding. They are exceptionally crisp and bright. The field is sharp from edge to edge. They cost only one-third of what you would expect to pay for the most expensive binoculars, and I doubt that anyone could find fault with the image when compared to the most expensive alternatives. I recommend these unequivocally for anyone who prefers 10 power binoculars over 8 power. I recommend also purchasing a pair of tethered lens covers for 42mm binoculars to use in the field. The supplied plug-in objective covers are too likely to fall out in use in the field.

                  I bought these binoculars on price point. I then realised the high quality of the product and amazing value for money they represent only after I started using them.

                  As a result my brother in law also bought a pair.

                    I've only had these about a week. These are excellent binoculars with very clear images. I had an older pair of 10X32 Zeiss binoculars and they didn't make them anymore. The only minor issue I have is that these are a bit heavy.

                      I use these while hiking the nature trails. The Zeiss build feels balanced and comfortable in your hands.The focus wheel is very smooth and the eye cups have several levels of adjustment. The lens caps for the exit pupils are great but the ones for the front objectives fall out easily as if Zeiss almost intends that you don't use them so I don't. The case that Zeiss provides is great and with the lens caps removed access is very quick and easy! Everyone I have handed these binoculars to have commented they would like a pair. I think the price for these is fair unlike some of the other brands out there charging two and almost three times as much!

                      I use this product primarily for astronomy and it is great. Stars are pinpoint and it has more light throughput than a Nikon 10X50 that I also own. I can find nothing to quibble about with this pair of binoculars. They are as near to perfect of any I own, and I own 5 different pairs.

                        I bought this pair of binoculars as a replacement for my old Jena Zeiss 10x50.
                        The clarity of the Conquest is exceptional. It maintains sharpness in the entire field of view. It is well suited for limited light conditions. Although I'm not wearing glasses, I like the long eye relief as well.

                        Comments about Zeiss Conquest 10x42 HD Binocular:

                        The view through these is really amazing. I've carried them on bird walks for a couple of times now. The only minor negative is the added weight, but to be fair, I didn't compare weight with other competing binoculars. I found that I can stabilize them on top of my camera tripod which works out well. I can see what my camera will take when I get home and zoom in on the picture on my computer. So, overall, definitely recommend.
